I’m posting late today, by deliberate choice; rather than bore you with the details of why that decision even arose as a possibility, I’ll try to figure out some alternative method of filling in this oh-so-influential portion of any piece, to wit: the intro.

It’s kind of like breakfast, y’know? As the first meal of the day after our night’s journey into the arms of Morpheus, a good breakfast offers the opportunity for a much better day than those where we skip such amenities. In the same way, a good intro can influence the reception of all that follows, regardless of the quality. Whether good, or bad, it all goes better with a good intro. It’s really a shame I’m such a putz about creating them, isn’t it?

Hmph…. You didn’t have to say “yes” so quickly, or loudly. I’m sitting right here. Ah, well, since I still can’t seem to come up with any ideas of how this pathetic beginning can be saved, I’ll just give up & say, with no small sense of relief, on with the show, such as it is today, once again sans rant/discussion/intimate confession, or anything other than good music & half-decent poetry & prose…. Try to enjoy it anyway, alright?….

Shall we Pearl?

“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered.
But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula,
the big answers don’t remain stone-written.
We adjust to new conditions and discoveries.
We are pliable. Love need not be a command or faith a dictum.
I am my own God.
We are here to unlearn the teachings
of the church, state, and our educational system.
We are here to drink beer.
We are here to kill war.
We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well
that Death will tremble to take us.”

~~ Charles Bukowski ~~

In 2013, at the age of 9 years, this young lady came on the stage of Holland’s Got Talent, & proceeded to signal the return of a very old soul. She won the contest that year, and continues to amaze people all over the world with the depth of her talent. Below, I’ve included a link to her current website; in the Media section, you can find a number of performances she has given since then, & find out more about an artist you will be hearing about as long as she performs…. Amazing talent…. Enjoy!….





A Dubiously Soft Morning

Idiosyncratic images, clamoring for regard,
fill up the white, white screen on which I view
my life, never seeing, nor invited to sup
ambrosial remnants of anything new.

Still, yet almost in motion, allegory sails away
bobbing gently, quick and easy to find,
signs of one happy child, seriously at play,
blissfully immersed, focused joy in mind.

Formidable cries of outraged simple justice
echo plaintive relevance, in half the time.
Maladaptive infants, destined for hospice
salvage an only child, daring to sing in rhyme.

Creativity equals unquestioning farce,
often reaching for absurdity, brazenly afire.
Instead, a blow is felt no joy will ever soften,
accepting the price, added to the cost of desire.

Emily, First & Last….


“Not knowing when the dawn will come, I open every door.”

~~ Emily Dickinson ~~


“I think computer viruses should count as life.
I think it says something about human nature that
the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive.
We’ve created life in our own image.”

~~ Stephen Hawking ~~


“In real life, unlike in Shakespeare,
the sweetness of the rose depends upon the name it bears.
Things are not only what they are.
They are, in very important respects, what they seem to be.”

~~ Hubert H. Humphrey (1911-78) ~~


“Time carves all.

Let yourself be carved to attain your true nature.”

~~ Master Po ~~


“A right is not what someone gives you; it’s what no one can take from you.”

~~ Ramsey Clark ~~


“I think the dragon’s asleep.”

~~ Famous Last Words ~~


“A word is dead
When it is said
Some say.
I say it just
Begins to live
That day.”

~~ Emily Dickinson ~~

In the words of the Colonel, “I love it when a plan comes together….” Nothing like a balanced pearl of virtual wisdom to start, or end, your day….


Even 3 sheets to the wind, I can tell when enough is enough, making me a rich man. I won’t promise, but, I hope to have completed my ‘discussion’ by tomorrow, when I intend to post yet again. (The road to Hell is paved, etc….) Until then, chill, & maintain strangeness….

Y’all take care out there,
and May the Metaphorse be with you;
Blessed Be, dearest Carole, Mark,Theresa, & Richy
and everyone else, too…

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Which is Why….

Sometimes I sits and thinks,
and sometimes,
I just sits.
